What We Do

Fantastic food and drink coupled with great hospitality is what we do best!

We also do Gift Vouchers which is an ideal present for any foodie.  We print in house and can do any set amount or for a particular item/event eg; a bottle of champagne or 3 courses from our set price lunch menu or treat a foodie adventurer to one of our exclusive Chef’s Table events, to name just a few.  You can order them over the phone and pop along to collect or have them posted (£2.00p+p).

Like our business our menus are constantly evolving and change with the seasons.  All of our dishes are made to order and we can cater for all dietary requirements.  Please feel free to contact the restaurant prior to arrival and discuss menus with Ben.  Full allergen information is available on request.

Special Occasions

Penrose Kitchen is the perfect place to celebrate your special day and we would love to help mark the occasion in any way we can.  We can organise fresh flowers with 48hrs’ (minimum) notice.   Celebration cakes, chocolate ot vanilla, can be ordered (72 hours’ minimum notice).  Prices start from £20.00.  You are more than welcome to bring a cake although we can only store it in the kitchen if it lists all ingredients and allergens.  Please be advised that we will add a cakeage to your bill of £5.00 per person.  

Lunch is 12.00 til 2.00 Wednesday – Saturday offering a set price varied lunch menu.

We welcome well behaved children to our restaurant at lunch time but don’t offer a children’s menu as such.  Children up to 12 can eat from the fixed price lunch  at a reduced price and portion size.

For the comfort of all our guests, children under 12 years of age are not permitted in the restaurant for evening service. 

Evenings see a swift transformation with linen table cloths and napkins adding a more elegant touch.  The menu is carefully planned each day using fresh seasonal produce from our favourite suppliers.  All of our food is freshly cooked to order which is reflected in the size of our menus and is accompanied by our carefully selected wine list with selections from old and new world.  The dinner menu is offered Wednesday – Saturday from 6.00pm until 9.00pm while our bar serves until 11.00pm.  

Sunday mornings see us go back to our relaxed day time setting for our popular Sunday roast which is always Etherington’s beef and another roast meat from local farms.  We have an extended time for Sunday and so our Sunday lunch menu is served from 12.00 until 4.00pm.  Please note that 4.00pm is our last booking time and not our closing time.
